Gabriel angelus apparuit Zachariæ dicens:
nascetur tibi filius nomen ejus Joannes vocabitur
et multi in nativitate ejus gaudebunt.
Erit enim magnus coram Domino,
vinum et siceram non bibet.

English.png English translation

The angel Gabriel appeared to Zachariah and said:
a son will be born to you, and you are to call him John,
and many will rejoyce because of his birth.
He will be great in the sight of the Lord,
and is never to take wine or other fermented drink.

De engel Gabriel verscheen aan Zacharias en zei:
je zult een zoon krijgen, en hem Johannes noemen,
en velen zullen zich over zijn geboorte verheugen.
Hij zal groot zijn in de ogen van de Heer,
en wijn en andere gegiste dranken zal hij niet drinken.
